You are herecontent / Letters to the Editor
By davidswanson - Posted on 29 July 2005
Post your letters to the editor here.
Good Morning: According to latest polls, many Americans think Bush should be impeached. He has not told the truth in years. His inaction ruined one career and put our whole intelligence community at risk.Don't you find it repugnant that his loyalty to some D.C. flack is stronger than to our intelligence team? His best friend, Blair, heard that Bush was cooking the books to justify going into Iraq. It is a matter of record. We can't trust Bush anymore because we can't learn the truth from him. We need your leadership to bring him to justice. Thank you, Bill Ryan
Letter to FOX Media outlets,.....
Considering the recipients, the point of this e-mail is problematic at best. "Factual News", like "Humane Torture" or "Little John" is oxymoronic at best in your business....whereas FACTS, indisputable matters of record.... those kinds of "facts" - see http://www.americanprogressaction.org/site/apps/custom/cap/findorg.asp?c... are always MIA on your "show of shows".
Nevertheless, as one who sees the glass half 'full',....
May the lightning bolt of epiphany hit you and provide a moral center, an ethical standard that you shall need to tell your audiences about TRUTH: the many Downing Street Memos which show that perhaps nearly 168,000 souls from five countries now dead, dying, or wounded for life and psychologically scarred are laid directly at the doorstep of the most despicable - dumb as nails - dolt whom you dote over, fawn over, with sycophantic praise.
There is 6 years of incontrovertible facts which you nightly DENY, RE-INVENT; RATIONALIZE AWAY, REWRITE , OBFUSCATE, or CONTRADICT: names, dates, events demonstrating the total incompetence, moral turpitude and utter dereliction of duty to make this country - never mind this small, fragile planet of ours - safe secure, free.
Is Rory Mayberry lying about the spoiled food fed to our troops after it is "de-shrapneled"? Is Bunny Greenhouse lying about the nearly $1Billion in KBR/Halliburton cost overruns in the Food Services Business in Iraq? Why was NORAD told to "stand down" by Mr. Cheney instead of getting birds in the air - which the testimony shows - could have intercepted two of the four planes on 9.11? Every whistleblower to fraud and corruption, decent, high-minded, high-IQ FBI, CIA, State Department, Military Officer and Scientist have quit or been fired when the alternative was for this government to admit error. This is normal to you?
Induction is a valid mode of reasoning. Ergo, each of these has been a cover-up. And cover-ups of the cover-ups.
Your station -to put it so you can understand it - creates chaos and insurgency by illegal wars, and then rails that our country must go out and quell chaos and insurgency that we caused in the first place.
You are case studies for psychologists the world over in your uncanny and perfected ability to "project". You break the vase and then say "he did it"; you preach "culture of life" then allow Mercury levels to rise to all time highs so that it now compromises the unborn fetus of every ninth mother-to-be. You oppose life at every turn.
But this small man, and those who shill in his name,.... have gone far, far beyond the other lies: Gulf of Tonkin, Watergate break-in, Iran Contra Arms for Rebels, Ellsberg Break-in. Now it is Treason and Sedition. Against my United States Constitution and my inaliable rights to pursue life, liberty and happiness. Purely and Simply a Cold ROCK HARD Case of Facts to show that completely ILLEGAL and IMPEACHABLE ACTS were committed. This is not a reasoned dispute over ideological differences: good Republican v. good Democrat. This is a war against venal corrupt Criminal "Above the Law" incompetence- by- design.
Your vision of America and mine are indeed quite different. In mine, I do not tolerate Above the Law behavior. By anyone.
Including those who lie for them.

All of us should read Ben Bagdikian's book on the role of the media and its immense power to shape public opinion. Can anyone honestly state that the multinational corporations that control all print and video journalism are not at least obliquely supporting this conflict? Is there a reputable and wide spread news outlet that is disseminating information that is openly critical of Mr. Bush? Where are the real journalists? the true patriots? When this happened in 1974 America was ready to abolish the office of President, yet in 2005 we seem relegated to a uncontrolled fear that suspends any action------why? what have we become????
I feel it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT (As do a GROWING NUMBER OF AMERICANS) that President Bush and his Administration be held ACCOUNTABLE for the nearly 2000 American lives that have now been lost in this ILLEGAL WAR that President Bush CHOSE to enter into in Iraq. (Not to mention the THOUSANDS who have been MAMED and disabled for the REST OF THEIR LIVES) God only knows the ACTUAL number of INNOCENT IRAQI's that have lost their lives or been mamed as a result as well. (Independent resources I TRUST say the average loss of Iraqi lives to Americans is 10:1, that being so, the estimates of lost Iraqi life is nearing 200,000)
I feel VERY STRONGLY that we need a plan to extract ourselves from this ILLEGAL WAR! Who are we the USA, to hold ourselves to a LESSER STANDARD than the rest of the world? Who are we the USA to expect others to RESPECT AND UPHOLD to the Geneva Convention, WHEN WE DO NOT? Who are we the USA to attack a country who posed ABSOLUTELY NO THREAT to us (as shown by Ambassador Wilson, and the UN Weapons Inspection Teams, as well as OTHERS) in any way.
The Downing Street Memo, is VERIFICATION that THE INTELLIGENCE WAS MADE TO FIT THE POLICY!!!! The FACT that even though publicly President Bush was DENYING he had made a decision, that he would EXHAUST EVERY PEACEFUL means at his disposal prior to going to war, The Downing Street Memo PROVES OTHERWISE!!!!!
THIS MUST BE FULLY & THOROUGHLY INVESTIGATED.
I urge you to become a CO-SPONSOR of Congresswoman Lee's Resolution. YOU MUST DO YOUR DUTY to the Constitution of the United States of America and protect her from enemies and those who would do harm to the State BOTH DOMESTIC & Foreign. In this case DOMESTIC.
President Bush and his Administration, WASTED over 240 MILLION dollars in PROPAGANDIST (VNR's= Video News Releases) news stories to have us watch on the evening news. An enormous EFFORT to DUMB DOWN THE AMERICAN PUBLIC.
No matter how many times a LIE IS TOLD it WILL NEVER BE THE TRUTH. Though, it may sway the beliefs of some American People WHO KNOW NO BETTER. They expect that they are hearing the TRUTH when they turn on the Evening News, however the CORPORATE donors & Media Networks just marched along with Bush's drum-beat and assisted in pushing his agenda to go to war. I can't even imagine what went on behind the scenes for the Major Networks to go along with this CRAP! This propagandist preverication MUST STOP.
Imagine what that 240 million dollars could have done for Pell Grants, or increasing pay for teachers, or improving our public education, or even providing Health Care for the indigent!!!
Again I STRONLY URGE you to Support Congresswoman Lee's Resolution!!
Thank you for your time!
THE LIES MUST END HERE AND NOW. The American People are demancing A REAL INVESTIGATION, not one like the rediulous 9-11 Report. There are those within the American society at large that KNOW & SEE THE TRUTH no matter how many times the networks say otherwise, and we WILL be voicing our concerns at the ballot boxes in 2006 and beyond. We are a VAST growing network of Americans who wish to see the checks and balances placed in the hands of the House & Senate REINSTATED and USED! Please keep this in mind as you proceed in your endeavors to UPHOLD the OATH you took when coming into office!!
In the end we must ALL be held to ACCOUNT FOR OUR ACTION or INACTION. They both have Consequences. ONE ALWAYS HAS 3 CHOICES: 1. To Act 2. To NOT Act and 3. To ask & wait for CLARITY. I urge you to first ask for clarity and then ACT!!!!

As a DAV of the US NAVY, I am to appalled with the situation in Iraq. I feel for Mrs. Sheehan. I don't think our troops should be over there fighting for a vendetta that Bush has against the ex president of Iraq.
Every evening when I watch the CBS news, tears well in my eyes for the ones we have lost and the ones who will be deployed not knowing if they will return.
I agree with Michael Moore when he asked the senate and congress WOULD you send your "son or daughter" ? you know that it would be a cold day in hell before they would.
It has to STOP and if Mrs. Sheehan needs my support I will give it.
I think the solution to the problem would be to have a recruiting freeze or stop our sons and daughters from enlisting. Yes, it would really bring back the draft, but as a consciences objector, what can they do? Put all of us in jail? Then Bush is NO better than the middle east and other countries that do not have human rights.
Do we not have rights as US citizens or does Bush want US to be the terrorist?
I applaud you Mrs. Sheehan. I know my opinions cannot comfort you, but stand tall and be proud of your son and the courage he faced as well as the rest of our soldiers who have sacrificed all for the honor of OUR country.
I am a PROUD veteran who opposes this war.

The Downing Street memo makes it clear that George Bush made up his mind to employ military action against Saddam Hussein as early as July of 2002. Also, the memo states that Saddam was not threatening his neighbors, and that Iraqs Weapons of Mass Destruction capability posed less of a threat than Libya, North Korea, and Iran. Furthermore, the memo states "But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy."
Rep. Barbara Lee's (D-CA-9) Resolution of Inquiry requests that the State Department and the White House furnish all communications with the U.K. relative to the U.S. policy with Iraq. This inquiry will help determine if the administration has violated Article II, Section 4 of The U.S. Constitution, which states that high government officials shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
This inquiry is necessary to determine if crimes have been committed.
To date 44 cosponsors have signed onto Representative Lees Resolution of Inquiry. A glaring deficiency of the cosponsors-from a Colorado stand point-is the lack of Colorado Representatives who have not signed onto this Resolution.
The U.S. Constitution is not a partisan document. It does not divide us into Republicans and Democrats. Our Constitution is an American document for the People. If Congress will not impose our system of Checks and Balances and appropriately use their Separation of Powers to effect an understanding and resolution of these issues We the People should require no less and demand resolution.
We the People have been witness to too many leadership abuses recently. I urge all Colorado Representatives to sign and or support this Resolution.

John Pilger's definitive analysis of the very dangerous crackpots currently running America
One of George W Bush's "thinkers" is Richard Perle. I interviewed Perle when he was advising Reagan; and when he spoke about "total war", I mistakenly dismissed him as mad. He recently used the term again in describing America's "war on terror". "No stages," he said. "This is total war. We are fighting a variety of enemies. There are lots of them out there. All this talk about first we are going to do Afghanistan, then we will do Iraq... this is entirely the wrong way to go about it.
If we just let our vision of the world go forth, and we embrace it entirely and we don't try to piece together clever diplomacy, but just wage a total war...our children will sing great songs about us years from now."
How's this for starters, Mr. Perle~ (to the tune of The Beverley Hillbillys)

Bush Raises Option of Using Force Against Iran
JERUSALEM - President Bush said on Israeli television he could consider using force as a last resort to press Iran to give up its nuclear programme.
"All options are on the table," Bush, speaking at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, said in the interview broadcast on Saturday.
Asked if that included the use of force, Bush replied: "As I say, all options are on the table. The use of force is the last option for any president and you know, we've used force in the recent past to secure our country."
THIS WAR IS ABOUT ONE THING: OIL, OIL, OIL!!!!
BUSH AND CHENEY ARE THE OIL MEN.
THEIR BUDIES IN THE OIL INDUSTRY ARE MAKING IT BIG AT THE COST OF LIVES, BOTH IRAQI AND AMERICAN.
BUSH AND CHENEY MUST HAVE THERE HIDDEN ACCOUNTS OVER FLOWING WITH CASH.
JUST AS IN VIETNAM, THE IRAQI'S ARE NOT GOING TO FIGHT FOR THEMSELVES.
THE'LL SIT BACK AND LET THE AMERICANS DO THE FIGHTING. THEY DON'T LIKE US.

Impeach Bush Road
North East, USA
I have had enough of this White House lies over and over again. I reccomand impeachment as soon as possible. Our Congressmen need to realize that the American people have had enough from this administration.
President should clean house
If a president lying about his sex life is deemed an impeachable offense, what does lying to a federal grand jury about decisions that led our country to an unprovoked war of occupation of a sovereign nation?
Karl Rove and Scooter Libby were part of the White House Iraq Group. This secretive team operated out of Cheney's office and was formed to sell the case for war. According to the N.Y. Daily News, WHIG "morphed into a virtual hit squad that took aim at critics who questioned its claims."
We will not be able to trust our government until every one of the White House officials who conspired to mislead the American public into war with Iraq are out of the administration. President Bush has an obligation to clean house of all the liars.
-- Frank DiMauro, Chapel Hill
One must question the Bush&Cheney Cabal's possible complicity in the events of 9/11,considering their actions,behaviors and results,prior to and after 9-11-01. Ignoring the warnings that could have prevented the attacks, as well as ignoring any intelligence that Saddam did not have WMDs. The Bush/Cheney Cabal attacks anyone who disagrees with their agenda. The price of gasoline triples since the Bush/Cheney Cabal entered office. It is only heading downward now because the majority of American citizens are sick and tired of being lied to by the Bush/Cheney Cabal resulting in polls that almost two thirds distrust Bush and Cheney. These numbers are very important to Bush/Cheney's Big Oil buddies because without the support for the Iraq War,they are likely to lose control of the world second largest oil reserves(Iraq). Big Oils wants it all and Bush/Cheney are their boys.One must figure the odds of advantageous happenings that have resulted in $70 a barrel oil prices,senate approval for drilling in ANWR,$220+ Bil.Iraq War,the missing 28 pages of 9/11 Investigation,the manipulization of Pre-War Intelligence,huge War contracts for Haliburton& Carlyle and the approval of the Patriot Act.What are the odds one must ask for Bush to be able to deliver so much money to his friends. So much has changed since the days the media was only interested in extra marital affairs.Some European newspapers ran the headline 'How Could 59ml People Be so Dumb' in regards to Bush being elected for a second term,the answer is,they just are. In a way its very comforting to me that I have tried my best to protect American by writing as many comments that reveal the Bush/Cheney Cabal as Evil as any this country has ever seen.I have been able to investigate them objectionaly via the internet. The propaganda spewed by the Mainstream News Media is probably why so many Americans made such a terrible decision during the 2000 election and even yet 2004. Americans are moving in great numbers to the internet for their news,which may be the only salvation for freedom of the press.I have always been very poor and extremely patriotic the comfort I get knowing 59 ml people voted for Bush is that we live in a capitalistic country and I being of enough intelligence to deduce the evil and corruption of the Bush Cabal before being realized,puts me at a great advantage to survive the hard times that the Bush/Cheney Cabal are causing now as well as in the long foreseeable future.I look forward to the day I will once again be able to afford gas,electric,food and water.God Bless America and lets all curse the Evil 'doers within our own borders as well as everywhere else. Impeach Bush & Cheney and put them on trial for war crimes. Rally America lets do right.
Three strikes and you’re out.
It’s time to impeach our president. First he led us into war in Iraq on the basis of faulty information. Maybe he knew his “facts
Dear Mr. President:
Your conscience does not bother you? How can you sleep at night.
Don't you hear crying widows and children not believing something has happened to their loved one? Now who will bring food on the table. How many more lives you are sent to destroy. Did Condi and oters alike told you to ignore the sufferings of our fellow human beings? PLEASE, PLEASE stop this carnage. Your name has already gone in the History as you know what.
I will write to all that I have to. I want Bush impeached and so does the majority of the american people. So why is he still president. This is the story that the media should be covering in great lengths. The majority rules and the majority want him out so why is he still in? Please cover this story.
I'm with you on this Ernie. Let's impeach Carter, Clinton and Bush for this. Best, JN
To: John Nichols
Subject: Censuring Bush Requires Citizens' Help
Ever since The New York Times reported that the National Security Agency had intercepted international telephone calls between Americans and suspected al-Qaida agents, Democrats and their media cohorts like yourself John have been accusing President Bush of "domestic spying."
Why didn't you object when former Presidents Carter and Clinton authorized their NSA to do the same kind of surveillance during their administrations? Could partisan politics and media bias be motivating their present hysteria?
Citing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978, Carter issued an executive order that the "attorney general is authorized to approve electronic surveillance to acquire foreign intelligence information without a court order."
During the 1990s, Clinton's NSA monitored millions of phone calls and e-mails between U.S. citizens and foreign nationals under a secret program called "Echelon." These intercepts were done without "court search warrants" and were prior to the 9-11-01 terrorist attacks.
In 2002, a panel of appellate judges stated, in the FISA case (U.S. v. Truong), that the president did have inherent authority to "conduct warrantless searches to obtain foreign intelligence information." And also that "we take for granted that the president does have that authority and, assuming that is so, FISA could not encroach on the president's constitutional power."
The current wiretaps have only been used in cases involving suspected al-Qaida agents. Several planned attacks, including one to blow up the Brooklyn Bridge, have been prevented as a result of monitoring phone calls.
Our Founders rightly gave the executive branch the greatest power to defend our national security. And I am thankful that President Bush is using his legal constitutional power to protect Americans from further terrorist attacks.
Instead of partisan criticism and attempts to weaken the Patriot Act, Democrats like yourself need to make the safety of Americans their primary concern.
Today in History we are seeing a government run by a corrupt Repulicans that are willing to sell their soles to stay in office. Anything the Democrats have to say about an investigation into the corruption is always met with a negative comment that does not want to address the real problems we are facings with this leadership.
Impeachment of Bush is the only way we are going to be able to bring this corruption under control. We as Americans are making our voices heard and we want to clean up our government. The government for the people by the people and not by large corporation and millionaires. We must impeach now!!!
Try using your spell checker, moron Liberal.

Letter printed in 11/29/2006 Northwest Indiana Post-Tribune
"Bush's Iraq agenda rates Impeachment"
November 29, 2006
A Post-Tribune letter writer is still upset that I protest the civilian casualties in Iraq.
Previously, it was said that I accused Marines of murder at Haditha. After pointing out I did nothing of the kind, I am now accused of not protesting our 3,000 deaths on 9/11.
When foreigners commit a terrorist act, I bear no responsibility, but when our government pre-emptively embarks on a war of aggression in Iraq, it is done in the name of every American. My protests have concentrated on what our government is doing in our names around the world and at home.
United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan called the Iraq War illegal, and Pope John Paul II called it immoral. The president promised to get U.N. approval for his invasion, but reneged when he saw he didn't have the votes in the Security Council.
Millions of people took part in worldwide demonstrations, saying no to war. Bush and his administration listened to no one who didn't subscribe to their neoconservative, imperialistic ideology.
It didn't matter that they "had to fix the facts and intelligence around the policy" of war as stated in the Downing Street Memo. They pushed their war agenda with a propaganda campaign waged against the good sense of the American people. Their misinformation campaign of half-truths and outright lies got them what they wanted -- the support of the American people for war.
The Nuremberg Tribunal called a war of aggression the "supreme international crime in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole." Iraq was a war of aggression, and the president bears direct responsibility for the deaths at Haditha and countless other sites across Iraq. Johns Hopkins University and the respected British medical journal Lancet estimate these civilian deaths at 650,000.
The Constitution has a remedy; it is called impeachment. Congress has a duty to investigate and uphold the rule of law. Call your representative and senators, and ask them to do their duty.

Impeachment is our civic duty
When a president or a vice president violates the laws of our land, impeachment is what our founders expected us to pursue. To fail to do this is to reveal to ourselves and the world that America has lost the rule of law and that those in high places will escape justice. If government leaders are allowed to commit crimes without punishment, there is no justice.
Our president is not above the law. No one in America ought to be above the law. Nor should we punish the poor, the weak and the sick more harshly than those possessing power and money. We must demand that impeachment proceedings be done in the name of justice for all those who have sacrificed their health and their lives in a war that ought never have been permitted to start.
Impeachment is needed so that everyone in the world can see how a democracy deals with lies, abuse of power, subversion of the Constitution and violation of our laws. It is vitally necessary that justice be served.

Note: Now that everybody knows and sees what is happening – Let’s all Act like Americans who LOVE THIS COUNTRY!
Let’s get our country BACK and secure the FREEDOM OF THE PRESS! Without a FREE PRESS we cannot be FREE in the USA!
I am the lady who told most of you about National Id back in April and I am BACK! I have a story to tell that could save us ALL!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
To the News Networks:
The American voters NEED to know that their current Senators and Congressmen passed into law that we are all getting National Id’s in 2008. It is already federal law that American’s cannot drive a car, ride a plane, ride a train, go into a government building, open a bank account or have a job without this national id. The controversy surrounding the new law relates to the way it was passed as much as to what it does. Because it passed as an amendment to an emergency spending bill providing funding for American troops, the Real ID Act did not come up for a vote on its own--or for full debate--in Congress. It was passed into law without the general knowledge of the American people! It has basically been kept SECRET and is still not know about by the American voter!
I have told many people here in Texas about this new law! I have only run into one person who already knew about it! How can we ‘the people’ participate in our government if Washington is passing laws and not telling us? What is even worse is why hasn’t this been fully explained in the evening news broadcasts? How come nobody knows about this? What has happened to the FREEDOM OF THE PRESS? The news networks have an obligation to keep us informed about what our law makers are doing! The news media has a responsibility to the public to tell us the truth! I want to know when we ceased to be a democracy!
I demand that the news networks immediately tell the American people about this before the upcoming elections! It is your duty to inform the voters of this country about this new federal law and how it was passed! It is your duty to inform the people of each state about where this law is at in their state legislatures. For instance, Wisconsin has already ratified it! I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS NORTH AMERICAN UNION ALSO!
Tell the people NOW or face the LEGAL consequences!

If two elected politicians ever needed to be impeached more than Bush or Cheney, I can’t think of who they might be. The only things that come out of this administration is lies, obfuscation, murder, propaganda, corruption, wholesale violations of the constitution, nepotism, criminal profiteering, crimes against humanity, war crimes, threats, smears, and dereliction of duty. I could fill pages with a bulleted list of impeachable offences these thugs have committed.
On the other hand, I cannot think of one thing this administration has achieved that is positive for the American people, nothing! They have exacerbated every existing problem and created a host of others that will take generations of Americans to put right. If some evil demon bent on destroying the United States had maneuvered its way to the helm of state it is almost inconceivable to me that it could wreak any more damage on this nation than Bush and Cheney have managed to wrought. These two men do not deserve to walk free in this world.
Forgive me for sounding vulgar but Bush has become a piece of swaggering excrement that won't flush away. Considering Bush's nefarious credibillity record, who can be certain that Osama Bin Laden ever had anything to do with 9/11? There is circumstantial evidence which suggests that he died over 6 years ago. Imagine the paranoia of innocent Iranian citizens, women, children, grandparents who only ask to be left alone yet they must now deal with the fear of a international murderous sociopath. Forget about impeachment hearings. Emergency criminal investigations of Cheney/Bush are now mandatory before the next false flag tragedy occurs. Itaq, Iran and Venezuala will prabably never trade oil with the American dollar again. Period.
It is very disturbing that evidence from the 9/11/01 crime scene was contaminated and removed. Certain Zionist elements (Fox News) advertised so much fear and hate that enough credulous people blindly cheered for the unelected mock president, Bush, to invade sovereign nations to plunder/rape/torture/murder/contaminate. They're not cheering anymore.
Mr. Bush's Iraq invasion and occupation was never ratified by Congress. This fact alone makes the Iraq war/occupation illegal. Period. Ever since Mr. Bush made a fool out of himself by swaggering aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln wearing Flight Gear in front of a "Mission Accomplished" banner, our military personnel have been exploited. Batallions have been knowingly exposed to depleted uranium and deployed into guerrilla warfare environments without appropriate training, food, water or equipment. As a result Of Mr. Bush's illegal occupation of Iraq, our soldiers are being killed, disabled and denied reasonable health care. VA benefits have been cut and soldiers are even being billed for faulty equipment and vacation allowances. Mr. Bush is AWOL from the Air National Guard. If I had been AWOL from active duty for Just one day I would have been subject to an Article 31 and imprisonment. Bush was AWOL for over year and he has never been held accountable. It is now clear that accountability is an alien concept to Mr. Bush. Thanks to the Bush Administrations recklessness, International Allies have become international adversaries, the American dollar is crashing, Cheney/Bush's lengthy list of warped, treasonous crimes against America's Constitutional Republic and American Citizens has yet to be addressed and at least 1.2 million Iraqi's have been killed and millions of lives have been destroyed. The illegal deployment of depleted uranium weapons has rendered millions of people to a fate of unbelievably pain and suffering. Mesopotamia has been contaminated.
In the United States innocent people have been spied upon since before "9/11" and harrassed. $2.3 + trillion dollars is missing from the US Treasury, billions of dollars have been wasted in the Cheney/Bush criminal oil enterprise, chickenhawk Cheney has been reaping obscene profits from the Afghanistan/Iraq invasions and occupations through Halliburton's inside stock trading and Bush is trying to destroy the sovereignty of the United States with his illegal "North American Union" scam. Bush has referred to our United States Constitution as "just a goddamned piece of paper" and joked about not finding his "WMDs". Ever since Bush/Cheney's dubious 2000 election (selection), oil corporations have enjoyed the largest monetary profits in human history. Bush's personal business deals with the Bin Laden family are yet to be investigated. The obstruction of justice and the documented list of felony and treasonous crimes that have been committed against the United States Republic by this illegitimate government is overwhelming. Nancy Pelosi says that "impeachment (Constitutional Law) us off the table". Incredibly, Bush has recently stated that investing resources into children's health care would be a irresponsible waste of money while he loots trillions of dollars into his criminal enterprise. We are supposed to believe that Bush's cabinet of oil cronies, Mid East oil Wars and high oil prices are merely a coincidence. I do not know if members of Congress have been threatened, bribed or perhaps just mentally challenged but it certainly sounds warped when such moral turpitude is "rationalized".
Regardless of the Zionist/atheist/racist elements in the Apartheid State of Israel and corporate greed in the US government/media, the Constitution belongs to us. Thanks to the CFR and certain Rockefeller elements, mainstream domestic news media outlets can no longer be trusted. 'FOX NEWS' is perhaps the most brazen of all corporate media outlets when it comes to slander, lies and propaganda.
Incredibly, Mr Cheney has stated that his office is not part of the Executive Branch. He avoided military service during a time of war with 5 deferments and he has no conscience whatsoever about exploiting thousands of lives in our military community. When it comes to being a high profile war profiteering chickenhawk, Mr. Cheney is in a class by himself. Mr Cheney's nefarious secrecy, obstruction of justice, treasonous felony crimes, frauds and smug lies has severely threatened the national security of the United States and our planet yet he is actively pursuing another reckless war against Iran. Mr. Cheney is a despicable excuse for a man who continues to dwell in the Vice President's office illegitimately. Who can say what kind of damage could be done to our planet during the next 11 months because "impeachment is off the table"? Failure to hold Mr. Cheney and Mr. Bush accountable to Constitutional Law is an act of Congressional treason. Many are unaware of the fact that Prescott Bush, the current president's grandfather, actively financed Adolf Hitler's Nazi regime in the 1930s through the Brown Brothers Harriman Banking Trusts. This vio;ation of " The Trading With The Enemy Act" was never accounted for. This should give everyone a clue as to who these people really are. This is not the dark age of stupid partisan nonsense. This is the 21st century. If the US is destined to become a fascist banana republic, we will never tolerate George Walker Bush.
American democracy has been derailed throughout the Bush-Cheney regime.
How could a once-admired, great nation fall into such a quagmire of killing, immorality and lawlessness? It happened in part because the Bush-Cheney team repeatedly deceived Congress.
Another grievous error made was the shipping of prisoners scooped off the streets of Afghanistan to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and other countries without benefit of our time-tested laws of habeas corpus. Laws that functioned well and kept our liberties safe through the days of World War I and World War II. Laws that safeguarded our rights through the Cold War.
Are the terrorists worse than the German Nationalists and the Nazis? Are the terrorists worse than the long night of the Russian war? President Ronald Reagan had the power to protect us from the Russians and communism with these laws. Are the terrorists stronger than the Russians? Are they more likely to kill us than the Russians (and Chinese) with their many declared nuclear devices and open loathing of us through those years?
Please. Is this a country of men or a country of laws? Protect our country and help to lead it to a brighter day; impeach Cheney now.
Many times in recent years, I have recalled Thomas Jefferson's observation: "Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just."
